Using Mental Health Consultations to Support SEL in Early Childhood

Early childhood mental health consultation (ECMHC) is an increasingly popular strategy for improving early childhood classroom climates and reducing suspensions and expulsions. This webinar explores findings from a recent research report from Yale Child Study Center on Ohio's Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation system. Classrooms that received ECMHC showed improvement in factors such as classroom climate, SEL, and how challenging behaviors are framed compared to classrooms that did not have ECMHC.
